It is not the government's job to regulate pricing and offerings from companies that are competing with each other.
There is nowhere that AT&T U-verse TV is available where cable and satellite aren't available. It's not a monopoly. They get to compete in our system of government.
If one of them thought they could beat their competition and still be profitable with a la carte pricing, it would happen very quickly. Same with how they price their current offerings. You get to vote with your wallet. This is a lot better than having your "Representative Government" vote for you, IMO.
If you want to live in a place where the government runs the TV networks, there are lots of countries where that is the case. This isn't one of them.
